New URLs in the RWTHmoodle documentation portal

by Koser, Valentin -
In the period from 12/09/2022 to 24/09/2022, we restructured the RWTHmoodle documentation. The purpose of the restructuring is to increase the quality and better findability of certain content. Please note that due to the creation of new categories and the summary of content under top categories, the URLs of many instructions have changed. If you have saved URLs to instructions, they may now lead to nowhere. To find and bookmark old instructions in ITC Help, please use the page navigation or the search function of the RWTHmoodle documentation portal.
